CullenCollimore recently prevailed in an action for injunctive relief and further obtained a ruling that a small New Hampshire Town and five of its officers are entitled to recover their attorneys’ fees and costs incurred in obtaining that relief. The defendant, unhappy with the foreclosure on his home and his later arrest for criminal trespass when he refused to vacate the premises, filed a so-called “commercial lien” in the Registry of Deeds. In that “lien,” he asserted the clients were indebted to him in the amount of $289,311,260 for breaching an unspecified "contract". Notwithstanding the absurd nature of the claim, the presence of the lien created a serious risk of harm to the financial reputations of the clients, and was plainly designed to harass and retaliate against the officers. CullenCollimore filed a Petition for Injunction, obtained preliminary relief barring the defendant from filing any further “commercial liens,” and then successfully moved for summary judgment wherein the Court declared the supposed “lien” null and void and awarded the Petitioners their fees and costs.

CullenCollimore handles all types of litigated matters, and its clients include individuals, corporations and municipalities.
